POA-2020-00553, Latouche Passage

Published Feb. 5, 2021
Expiration date: 3/5/2021

David Burlingame, states the purpose is to construct a sheltered harbor and boat slips for recreational watercraft, which would improve access to the Latouche Island Townsite private landowners.  The closest sheltered area is less than 2 miles away (Horseshoe Bay) in Horseshoe Bay State Marine Park, but this site lacks access to the Latouche Island Townsite Subdivision, hence, access involves chartering a commercial landing craft from Whittier. The proposed work is to construction of a sheltered harbor comprising of the following components: 1) two seawalls located at the north and south end of the harbor; 2) a two-pronged float supported boat slip within the harbor; and 3) a 40-foot dock ramp connecting the floating boat slip with an anchored dock on land. The project would be completed in three phases:  1) Drilling and blasting bedrock to -10 feet MSL depth for an estimated 3,000 cubic yards (CY) of bedrock; 2) Extraction of fractured cut rock to construct the north and south seawalls (constructed to plan specs and feature 1:1.3 slope); and 3) Drilling and anchoring of two 6-inch steel piers to a depth of -10 feet MSL followed by installation of the float-supported boat slip.  The north seawall would require 2,810 CY of cut rock and would be constructed to an elevation of 20 feet mean sea level (MSL) and the south seawall would require 190 CY of cut rock and would be constructed to an elevation of 12 feet level (MSL).  A qualified explosive-handler would drill and blast bedrock within an approximately 5,400 square foot area to an elevation of -10 feet below mean sea level (MSL) elevation.  All blasting and excavation would occur during low tides (-3.00 to -3.49-feet MSL) between April 27-29, or May 23-June 3, 2021, (+0.35 to -3.96-feet MSL). All work would be performed in accordance with the enclosed plan (sheet 1 dated December 11, 2020, and sheets 2-3, dated January 7, 2021).  The project site is located within Section 33, T. 2 S., R. 9 E., Seward Meridian; USGS Quad Map Seward A-3; Latitude 60.0515º N., Longitude 147.9088º W.; Latouche Island Townsite Subdivision, Prince William Sound, 75 miles Southeast of Whittier, Latouched Island, Alaska.
